We eat here when we visit Palm Springs. Food is always super fresh and great. We are in the bar this trip and service was quick and friendly. Definitely worth a trip downtown for this very good Thai restaurant.

It's an attractive and bustling restaurant, with efficient (but not "slap-dash") service. Wine servings are copious, with one glass of wine being equal to two normal fill glasses! The menu is extensive, like most... More

The place is really nice and inviting, and the staff are super friendly and attentive. Unfortunately, our food wasn't great. I'd go back and give it another try if we were in the area again--even if just for the friendly atmosphere.

Maybe I've gotten spoiled with at least aunthentic-ish Thai food, but this place disappointed. I went at my aunt's suggestion and she is local so I had high hopes. But boy, pretty boring experience. My mom had a strange shrimp type dish with lots of acid and bib lettuce. I had a dish called Hot Basil (Hot Basil Sauteed with... More

Took forever to be seated. Pot stickers came out frozen in the middle, sent them back and the next batch came out frozen in the middle, so we sent those back as well. Entrees then took at least 30 minutes to come out and several were only luke warm. Asked twice for the sticky rice my son ordered, it never... More

i really liked the tom yum hot pot, a classic, portions where very big, great curry. The appetizer thought were not so great, spring rolls taste old and dumplings so so. The service was excellent and very friendly, overall a good place, im just quite picky when it comes to asian restaurant in California, i'm always expecting the best.

We love Thai food and this restaurant was at most average. Both the starter and the main dishes were lacking taste. The service was very good and the place nice.
